(3) I go on to say that Evangelical Religion does not under value the Christian ministry. It is not true to say that we do. We regard it as an honourable office instituted by Christ Himself, and of general necessity for carrying on the work of the Gospel. We look on ministers as preachers of God’s Word, God’s ambassadors, God’s messengers, God’s servants, God’s shepherds, God’s stewards, God’s overseers, and labourers in God’s vineyard.
(It's this last line that I disagree with since Luther himself plainly proved that Protestants can still very much believe in Christ's own promise that we recieve his body and blood at the supper he established. We can believe that without idolatry. It is the Roman Catholic practice of praying before the bread that is placed in a monstrance--special decorative holder-- that is idolatry to us, since neither Christ or his apostles taught such a thing. I believe Bishop Ryle goes too far in protesting the corporal presence of Christ since it certainly appears from scriptures to be something that Christ himself taught us, and according to Luther, something that was also quite Protestant.)
